The Magic Carpet Spirea is a low-growing deciduous shrub, reaching no more than 2 feet tall, but spreading up to 3 feet wide. It carries a kaleidoscope of leaf colors, starting the year bright red, then turning golden-yellow and ending in fall with glowing russet reds. All through June and July it is covered in clusters of bright pink blooms, and it makes a great addition to even the smallest garden. Perfect for filling the fronts of beds, making borders, or planting on slopes, it is an easy, trouble-free way to brighten your garden without adding garden work to your busy schedule.

  • Bright red new leaves bring spring color
  • Golden yellow leaves all summer long
  • Pink flowers through the summer months
  • Fall leaves are russet-red
  • Tough and reliable low-growing shrub

Grow the Magic Carpet Spirea in full sun for the best colors and blooming. Unlike its parent, the Goldflame Spirea, it won’t send up plain green stems, and it sprouts earlier in the year too. Hardy in zone 3, but heat resistant even in zone 8, it grows in any well-drained soil, even in urban conditions. Pests and diseases are never a problem. A simple annual trim is all the work needed – and that is optional.
